If today filmmakers like Rohit Shetty, Sajid Khan, etc are sitting pretty on the top and relishing the 100 crore game with their films - GOLMAAL series, HOUSEFULL 2, READY, BOL BACHCHAN, SINGHAM then that’s the magic of brothers Sajid and Farhad, who swept you off your feet with their impressive one-liners, gags & punches or some great dialoguebaazi. Today Sajid-Farhad are the most sought after writers of Bollywood. The duo has created a record of sorts. Within a span of 18 months they have been credited with five back-to-back films that have crossed 100 crore mark.
Though today the twosome are regarded as the most bankable writers of Bollywood, they had their share of struggles. Coming from a non-filmy background, it was not easy to find foothold in B-town. However, their life changed once they came in Salman Khan’s contact. It was Salman who earned Sajid-Farhad a big break in the industry. He recommended duo’s name to David Dhawan for the film HUM KISISE KUM NAHIN. Says Farhad, ”Today whatever we have achieved it’s because of our family’s support. We had no Godfather, no contact in the industry. Salman Bhai gave us big break and introduced us to David Dhawan. We did HUM KISISE KUM NAHIN and from there on there was no looking back.”
